Thomas Lickona, Center for the 4th and 5th Rs (Respect and Responsibility), has been invited to be a Distinguished Professor at the Jubilee Centre for Character and Virtues at England’s University of Birmingham.
During the week of June 23-27, Lickona will present “Integrating Ethics and Excellence: Educating for Both Moral and Performance Character” as part of the centre’s biweekly seminar series, and he will confer with teams working on different research projects within the centre. The invitation was announced in the March 2014 issue of the Jubilee Centre Research and Policy Digest.
The 2014 Winter-Spring issue of excellence & ethics, co-edited by Lickona and Office Manager Marthe Seales, focuses on how schools and parents can combat the rising rate of dating violence and sexual assault, which have received growing national attention.
